30, 2018 - We have accomplished a great thing in the restoration of our parish. I
can't tell you how many people have commented to me at how remarkable it is.
Conrad Schmitt Studios and KC Scaffolding have been paid in
full! Thank you to everyone who honored their pledges. Any
future funds raised will go toward the maintenance and upkeep
of our beautiful church.

2017, we said our farewells to Mike who is the last of the studio artists to depart. Mike was one of two artists who painted the sample on the wall behind the side altar of St. Joseph over a year ago when our project was just beginning to unfold. That makes him the artist who has been on site the longest of anyone. Our thanks to him for all he has done to make our church

21, 2018 - Here is some additional news regarding one of the final pieces of our restoration. The old Communion rail sections which were present in front of the side altars prior to our work beginning are in the final stages of being restored and decorated. Local craftsmen have been working to extend the length of the rail and stain\gild it. When completed,
it will again be quite beautiful. Our intention, once the rail work is completed, is to return the rail back to a place of use in the church.
